Road accident on Delhi-Chandigarh highway kills four powerlifting players

The accident took place near the Singhu border in Alipur Police Station area in northwest Delhi

Four Indian powerlifting players were killed and two others injured as a private auto carrying them overturned on the Delhi-Chandigarh highway in Delhi today.

Bodies of four powerlifting players killed in the national capital were brought to their residence.

Police identified one of the injured athletes as Saksham Yadav, who had bagged a gold medal while representing India in a powerlifting world championship that was held in Moscow in 2017. The victims were on the Delhi-Panipat highway in a Swift Dzire auto which police believe was being driven at high speed in a drastically reduced visibility due to fog. The auto was moving at a high speed and the accident took place after the driver lost control of the vehicle.

Yadav and the other injured weight-lifter were rushed to the Max Hospital in New Delhi's Shalimar Bagh for treatment.

The police said that the other deceased have been identified as Tikamchand alias Tinka (27), Yogesh (24), Saurabh (18), Harish Roy (20).

Yadav, who was admitted in "extremely critical" condition at the AIIMS Trauma Centre, succumbed on Sunday evening. Some bottles were also found in the vehicle indicating the possibility of drunk driving.

Doctor said that he died at 6:38 pm of a cardiac arrest.

They were travelling from Panipat towards Delhi.

"The impact of crash was so severe that the auto rolled over several times with its roof getting completely blown off, before hitting a pole and killing four of them on the spot".

Due to severe impact, the car's roof was blown away.
